Agreed. I think there are 5 really good defenseman in this draft. Of those 5 maybe 2 or 3 turn out to be 1st pairing guys - so the Flyers are in a good spot at 11. I wish it were 8 but when it comes to the Flyers drafting defenseman - I wouldn't mind somebody with the 8th pick taking the guy they wanted. It sure worked out with Giroux that way. This team needs to just grow together to be a contender in a couple years.
